# ode_discrete

ordinary differential equation solver, discrete time simulation

### Calling Sequence

`y=ode("discrete",y0,k0,kvect,f)`

### Arguments

y0

a real vector or matrix (initial conditions).

t0

a real scalar (initial time).

f

an external i.e. function or character string or list.

k0

an integer (initial time).

kvect

an integer vector.

### Description

With this syntax (first argument equal to `"discrete"`) `ode` computes recursively `y(k+1)=f(k,y(k))` from an initial state `y(k0)` and returns `y(k)` for `k` in `kvect`. `kvect(1)` must be greater than or equal to `k0`.

Other arguments and other options are the same as for `ode`, see the see ode help.

### Examples

```y1=[1;2;3]; deff("yp=a_function(k,y)","yp=A*y+B*u(k)")
A=diag([0.2,0.5,0.9]); B=[1;1;1];u=1:10;n=5;
y=ode("discrete",y1,1,1:n,a_function);
y(:,2)-(A*y1+B*u(1))

// Now y evaluates  at [y3,y5,y7,y9]
y=ode("discrete",y1,1,3:2:9,a_function)```
